Analysis and Probability Seminar

The seminar is joint for the division of Analysis and Probability and its main themes are Mathematical Physics, Probability Theory and Harmonic and Functional Analysis. The seminar is encouraged to be aimed at a broader audience, but some talks may be of a more specialised nature. The talks in the seminar are usually 60 minutes, including questions.

At the moment, the seminar takes place via Zoom. See schedule below for links to Zoom meetings.

Should you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email one of the organizers Jakob Björnberg (jakobbj 'at', Probability Theory), Erik Broman (broman 'at', Probability Theory) or Genkai Zhang (genkai 'at', Analysis).

Duality, intertwining and orthogonal polynomials for continuum interacting particle systems
Duality is a powerful tool for studying interacting particle systems, i.e., continuous-time Markov processes describing many particles say on the lattice Z^d. In recent years interesting dualities have been proven that involve falling factorials and orthogonal polynomials; the orthogonality measure is the reversible measure of the Markov process. I'll address generalizations to particles moving in the continuum rather than on the lattice. Examples include independent diffusions and free Kawasaki, which have been investigated before, and a continuum version of the symmetric inclusion process, which is new. The falling factorials turn out to be related to Lenard's K-transform. The relevant notion of orthogonal polynomials belongs to infinite-dimensional analysis, chaos decompositions and multiple stochastic integrals. The talk is based on joint work with Simone Floreani and Frank Redig (TU Delft) and Stefan Wagner (LMU Munich).
